  • 400g plain flour

  • 200g unsalted butter, softened

  • 200g caster sugar

  • 1 large egg

  • ½ tsp vanilla extract

  • ½ tsp salt

You will need

1 x bunny shaped cookie cutter


  1. Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6 and line a baking sheet with baking parchment.

  2. Put the butter in a bowl and beat it until soft and creamy. Beat in the sugar, then the egg, salt and vanilla, and finally the flour to make a dough. If the dough is very soft, chill for 45 minutes.

  3. Cut out the biscuit into bunny shapes using the biscuit cutter (or any shapes you like; or even use the rim of a small glass and peel away the leftover dough around the edges). Re-roll off-cuts and repeat.

  4. Transfer the individual biscuits to the baking sheet and bake for 8-10 mins or until the edges are just brown. Leave to cool for 5 mins, then have fun decorating to however you like! Storage: Place them in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
